A charge q1 = 5.00nC is placed at the origin of an xy-coordinate system, and a charge q2 = -2.00nC is placed on the positive x axis at x= 4.00cm .

If a third charge q3 = 6.50nC is now placed at the point x= 4.00cm , y= 3.00cm find the x and y components of the total force exerted on this charge by the other two charges.

Find the magnitude of this force.

Find the direction of this force.
